10 Tools Authors Can't Live Without

tools for authors

Have you ever felt that the self-publishing world is full of one obstacle after another? I mean, once you figure out the writing part, you are faced with with a myriad of choices and even more costs to get your book into the hands of readers. We know, because we've spent years helping authors and publishers.

From the beginning, we dreamed of a day when we could create a platform that would handle every aspect of designing, publishing, promoting and marketing a book, all in one place. We wanted to take away the guesswork and drastically change how much authors have to spend on important items like book covers, print layout, ebook layout, promotional materials, social media campaigns and more.

Well guess what, we did it! And it turned out even better than we could have expected. We set out to save authors money, but we ended up creating software that is revolutionizing the self-publishing process.
